Stop with the condescending

You are wrong about the intent of the Federalist papers. Period. There is no monolith of thought with regards to the Constitution. Period. The FP were written by federalists, not all founders shared their opinion. Perhaps you should re-examine what you think you know to be true. The Supreme Court examines constitutionality all the time, opinions changing over time. Get over yourself with the “there are other countries” bullshit. I am perfectly comfortable with the intent of the electoral college as a means to unite the states into union.

Question, at what point are you no longer comfortable with a minority win for President? 3 million? Nope, you’re good, it’s your guy. 30 million? What is the number of disenfranchised Americans are you comfortable with. You are dismissive of the popular vote but when our government no longer represents a majority of Americans bad things can happen. It should concern you greatly.
